A few memorable moments from Hurricane Joaquin.
Man, this past run of swell was one to be remembered! After a long flat summer the first few days of Fall kicked off with a bang! Hurricane Joaquin mixing in with our first Nor' Easter real made for a good time. Every spot in Florida was firing and for the first time I didn't have to drive more than ten minutes to score pumping surf.
When I say score I really mean it! I had the privilege of shooting with several pro's including Brad Domke as well as Chris Ward. I was featured everywhere from Eastern Surf Mag to Surfing Magazine. This swell really allowed me to showcase some abilities of being able to shoot in the barrel. I was able to earn some international media making this the most successful Florida swell for me yet.
Check out these screen grabs from my features.
I snapped all of these in a two day span, that was a good two days! What a blessing it was to have swell like that. It was really good to see that everyone scored wherever they went. It wasn't like I sat in the magical spot, it was just where I was, everywhere looked like this.
Lets all hope and pray we get a winter that matches this swell!
Thank You for stopping in and hope to see you in the water.
